Alexander Campbell Study- 1832
Alexander Campbell and his father Thomas where the influential founders of the Disciples of Christ, one of the earliest homegrown denominations to emerge in the young United States of America. Thomas Campbell built a simple and spacious home in Bethany, West Virginia. Over the years Alexander added to this and eventually built the lovely Tudor/Gothic style hexagonal study in the garden. It is a simple, geometric and light-filled structure of whitewashed brick, with Gothic style pointed arches and buttresses.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. This simple structure, built as a study with bookcases could be used as a garden guest house, a single bedroom with no bath. With some manipulation and additions it could possibly be adapted as a complete cottage. Pergolas lead to a carport that accommodates 1 car. Although ideal for a flat site, these plans would also work on a moderately sloping one. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. The cottage has outside dimensions of approximately 17' x 21'-4".

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Tudor Style home, not a pseudo-Tudor tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf. (TU002)
